Peeps Challenge #4 . . . Okay to CASE!

Hi gals! Lucky thing Terri is on the ball, she reminded me it was my turn to post a challenge. I am getting ready to go out of town so I chose the easy route . . . CASEing!!! Yes, you have permission to CASE. I really enjoyed Nichole's challenge during the last blog hop to CASE one of the design team members, this time you are to CASE Nichole herself. And here are the parameters. Choose a card or project Nichole made from one of the last two releases and using a set NOT from that release, make a similar card. I chose her project here where she used the dahlias and the new color. I pulled out the dots background set and used Berry Sorbet, Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry as my colors stamped on vellum and Berry Sorbet for my colored paper strip. Berry Sorbet and Raspberry buttons for my button 'stack' at the end of the color strip and a sentiment from Damask Designs.

Can't wait to see what you come up with! Ready, set, CASE Nichole!

Papertrey Peeps Challenge #3

Hello, Peeps!  This is the first challenge I've ever issued, so bear with me!  I thought I would give you all the challenge that I have been working on the last few days and that is a birthday card for my sister, who is also my best friend.  Her birthday is March 2nd, so the timing works out very well for this challenge.  Her favorite color is orange, bright orange, and I always have so much trouble working that color into a feminine card.  (Mine usually end up looking sports-team imspired, which can be nice, but none of my sister's favorite teams feature orange!)  So that is the challenge: a feminine card featuring orange zest.  Bonus points if you work in Spring Rain, her second favorite color or a tea theme, since tea is one of her favorite things in the world.

If you don't have orange zest, substitute another orange or a color that you don't use very often. Good luck and have fun. 

My devious plan is to have a bunch of cards I can CASE for my sister for future events! :) So thanks in advance for taking part in this challenge. 

Here's my card!  I used Friends 'til the End to stamp the background on Orange Zest cardstock.  I made a another layer with the label imanges from tea time stamped in Versamark and Fresh Snow on Summer Sunrise.  The teapot is embossed and stamped with Polka Dot Basics in Versamark on Spring Rain.
